At The Maercks Institute, we offer MicroLaserPeel™ laser skin resurfacing treatments to provide patients with a smoother, more youthful-looking face. MicroLaserPeel is a mild yet effective, laser-assisted skin peel that treats a variety of conditions that affect the top layer of the skin, including sun damage or freckles, scars, keratosis, mild wrinkles, and pigment irregularities.
The laser skin resurfacing treatment
A MicroLaserPeel treatment only takes about 15 to 30 minutes in our Miami office, depending on the size of the treatment area. Patients can expect very little pain, although a topical numbing cream can be used if you prefer. During the procedure, damaged skin is removed and the texture is improved. A laser beam is used to remove a very thin layer of old, damaged skin by passing over the affected area. This removes damaged cells that make the skin look aged, dull, and tired. Snapping sounds may be heard in rapid succession as the area is treated. After the laser treatment, fresh skin cells grow and cover the treated area with younger, healthier-looking skin. Dr. Maercks will determine exactly how many treatments each patient needs based on the results from the procedure.
